Defining Research Priorities and Needs in Cancer Symptoms for adults who are living with and after cancer

Professor Meera Agar, Cancer Symptom Trials (CST) – University of Technology Sydney (UTS)

Summary of project

You are invited to take part in this survey is being conducted by a team of investigators from the Cancer Symptoms Trials (CST) unit.

We are interested in your views regarding which cancer symptoms have the biggest impact on daily life for people that are living with or have lived with cancer, and those that take care of them. This will help us identify gaps in prevention, detection or management of these symptoms and provide a clear direction for future research and clinical trials. This is the first survey of its kind within Australia and New Zealand. Your responses will assist us to advocate for and prioritise research into new medications, medical devices and non-medication treatments and clinical trials that in the view of people living with cancer, their families and health professionals who provide cancer care have the greatest potential to significantly improve quality of life of people with cancer and their families, both as they go through treatment and through to survivorship.

This survey takes about 30 minutes to complete. Your opinions and experience will be greatly appreciated. For more information, and to begin the survey, please click on this link:
